Here is a master blade smith at work. He has taken up the term "Damascus" since about 6 years ago. Before he would just call it a "this or that" blade, but now he makes pattern steel out of virtually any metal object/s. I don't care what he calls it, this man is a master.



There are a couple of idiosyncratic trademarks in his vids...one, he makes tea, the other is he works without gloves and wipes the anvil bare handed.
